600 YEARS OF HISTORY, STONE FROM 2-3 MILLION YEARS AGO

Ogatsu-Suzuri ink stone uses Ogatsu Stone from Ishinomaki City in Miyagi Prefecture where it was hit by the devastating earthquake and tsunami of 2011. The industry was left at a loss, however, every effort is made to keep the industry and pride of 600 years going. The beauty and attractiveness of Ogatsu Stone is its elegant natural pattern, onyx black color, and durability under intense condition. Because of the historical background and explicit characteristics, it is designated as Traditional Japanese Craft by the Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry.
